Atoms for Peace @ Le Poisson Rouge, 3/14/2013
"It's something we've talked about doing for ages, and we finally got our shit together," explains Yorke. "We've basically just cut everything up into its constituent parts. We'll try to re-cut the tunes live, mixing in loads of other bits and pieces and collaging stuff together.Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich debuted their new Atoms for Peace "singing DJ" configuration at Le Poisson Rouge last night (3/15), celebrating the release of new album Amok. Following sets from Arca and Holly Herndon, Atoms for Peace went on around 1AM and did 12 songs from the new Amok and Thom Yorke's Eraser with those "bonkers" projections. Once their official set ended, the night turned into a dance party with Yorke and Godrich spinning tunes like De La Soul's "A Rollerskating Jam Named 'Saturdays.'" Not bad for a school night.
At the same time as manning the machinery, Yorke will be adding his own live vocals and guitar to the mix. "I sing - but I felt kind of weird about that to begin with, because it's quite this weird mixture," he says. "It's like fucking karaoke or something! But it's not, because it's all this other stuff as well, and I have my own machines, like a drum machine and a vocal looper. It's interesting - singing, trying to remember words and programming a drum machine at the same exact time. It's kind of tricky."
The performance will also feature dynamic visuals designed by Dutch artist Tarik Barri. "That's fucking bonkers," says Yorke. "It's not like anything else." - [Rolling Stone]
More pics from Le Poisson Rouge, plus Atoms for Peace's setlist, are below.
Atoms for Peace at Roseland Ballroom in 2010 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Thom Yorke's group Atoms for Peace, who have a DJ gig in NYC coming up, made a video for "Ingenue" off of their new album, Amok. It was directed by Garth Jennings, who did Radiohead's "Lotus Flower" -- plus a zillion other cool videos and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- and you can check it out below.
As mentioned, Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich of Atoms for Peace took to the internets today to do a Reddit interview, which you can see HERE. When asked if they knew their album leaked, they said "Oh did it? How nice," and when asked a followup question about how they feel about it, they said, "Well.. unsurprised?" Those responses themselves are pretty "unsurprising," considering this is Thom Yorke, whose other band Radiohead has been using album leaks to their advantages for over a decade. (Thom also did a BBC interview today, which is archived HERE.)
Plus, we now know Atoms for Peace were about to let us hear it anyway, because they've just made the entire new album, AMOK, available at their website, http://amok.atomsforpeace.info. The stream comes along with a visualizer, and any site that links to AFP's site gets added to that visualizer (the site's currently down but will probably be back up later today). You can also listen to the album its entirety below...
As you may be aware, Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace project drops their debut album, Amok, next week (2/26) via XL. Maybe you've already heard it? You can ask Thom how he feels about leaks and file sharing -- as well as less controversial subjects (what toothpaste does he use?) -- when he participates in a reddit Ask Me Anything interview at 17:30 GMT (that's 12:30 EST).
At the same time, Yorke will be interviewed live on BBC 6Music during Steve Lemacq's show. You can tune in here.
Thom and Nigel Godrich will be DJing "with live vocals" at Le Poisson Rouge on March 14 which is, surprise, sold out.

Special guests and venues TBA. The last time Thom and Nigel DJed in NYC, they performed three previously unreleased Atoms for Peace songs with Thom singing live.
Thom recently made a mix for Dazed & Confused Magazine, which included previously unreleased Radiohead, Atoms for Peace, and Thom Yorke material. You can stream that mix and check out the tracklist below. Atoms for Peace's new album, Amok, will be out on February 26 via XL.
Stream, tracklist, and a list of all dates below...

Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace project will release their new album, Amok on February 26 via XL and they just revealed a new song/video clip from that album, "Judge Jury and Executioner." It will be available on iTunes tonight at midnight UK time or available for free if you pre-order the album.
Ultraista in LA in October (more by Debi Del Grande)
Ultraista (the project of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Walt Mink/Beck drummer Joey Waronker, and singer Laura Bettinson) has announced some January dates with production wizard Prefuse 73. No word yet on an official tour announcement, but the announced shows include on in NYC happening on January 28 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/14) at noon. All known dates are listed below.
In other Radiohead-related news, Thom Yorke recently revealed the details for his upcoming Atoms for Peace album (titled Amok, due out February 25). NME has since reported that their track, "What The Eyeballs Did," which was the b-side to the "Default" single can be downloaded for free at the Atoms for Peace website if you "scroll all the way over to the right and click on the dial of the clock tower."
All dates are listed below...
In Thom's words:
So finally I can tell you the Atoms for Peace record is coming out on the 25th February, it's called Amok.
The front will look like theez..
Thom Yorke at The Wooly - 9/7/12 (via non_equivalents)
Thom Yorke came to NYC over the weekend and DJed a Fashion Week party for Rag & Bone (whose co-designer Marcus Wainwright is a friend of Thom's) at The Wooly on Friday (9/7). A picture of Thom during his set at the Belvedere Vodka-sponsored party is above. Aziz Ansari was in attendance too.
Thom also, as discussed many times, did an Atoms for Peace DJ set for the final installment of this summer's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 with AFP bandmate and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Atoms for Peace just announced that their new album will come out next year, and to open their set, Thom and Nigel performed three new tracks that will presumably end up on that album with Thom singing live. You can watch videos of two of those new songs, and listen to audio of the third below. After the short unexpected live performance, Thom returned to the boards for the remainder of the show and spun a variety of tunes (everything from Talking Heads to Azealia Banks).
Thom Yorke & Nigel @ MoMA PS1 - 9/8/12 (via rebeccataylorny)
The rest of the lineup at Warm Up was great too. Despite a crazy storm, the show went on, opening with a set by Justin Strauss. Then Maria Minerva, who also did a Fashion Week show, just released new album, Will Happiness Find Me (stream it), and who now lives in Brooklyn (after moving from Estonia to London), played a live set. You can catch her in NYC again at Glasslands on Friday (9/14) with Father Finger and Octo Octa (tickets).
Up next was Holy Other, finally making his NYC debut, after having to cancel shows last summer due to illness. The elusive producer, who in a recent interview with Stereogum said he was "going to feel naked" performing outdoors during the day, played material off his excellent recently released debut LP, Held, and 2011's With U EP as well. A video from his set is below. The MoMA PS1 show fell in the middle of his tour with Amon Tobin, which hits the NYC area on Thursday (9/13) at Wellmont Theatre (tickets) and Friday (9/14) at Hammerstein Ballroom (tickets).
Before Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich finally took the stage, we were graced with one more set, this time by Scottish producer Rustie, who played Webster Hall with Flosstradamus and Brenmar the night before (9/7). He dropped bass heavy tunes that got the crowd going pretty wild. A couple videos from his Webster Hall show are below (unfortunately, the sound cuts out about halfway through).
Check out all those videos below...

Yesterday we mentioned that Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace project (which also includes Nigel Godrich and Flea) dropped their new single, "Default," on iTunes and that the single for the track will be out on September 10 via XL. You can now listen to that song below. Thom also announced that he plans to release a full length album with the project in 2013. Here's what he said today:
You may have heard that I have a new project called Atoms for Peace.As mentioned, Atoms for Peace will DJ Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on Saturday (9/8) with Holy Other, Maria Minerva, Rustie, and Justin Strauss. Advance tickets for that show are sold out but a limited number will be available at the door starting at noon.
The name comes from some shows of The Eraser that happened a couple of years ago with Mauro, Joey, Nigel and Flea.
We got a big buzz from them and discovered loads of energy from transforming the music from electronic to live, and so afterwards, we carried on for a few days in the studio and decided to make it a loose, on-going thing.
Immersed in the area between the two...electronic and live.
The first tune we'd like you to hear is Default
A 12" vinyl version will follow next month and an album will eventually follow that next year.
In related news, Radiohead performed at the Moody Theater in Austin this past March for an episode of Austin City Limits. Last night (9/6), it aired on a screen in Austin's Republic Square Park for the first installament of ACL in the Park. The performance will air on PBS stations for the 38th season of Austin City Limits on October 6. Other performances which will air this season include Bon Iver (10/13) and The Shins (10/27).
Listen to Atoms for Peace's "Default" below.

If you missed it, two other Indians tracks -- "Magic Kids" and "New" -- are streaming HERE.
In other Other Lives news, a remix of their song, "Tamer Animals," by Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace project with Flea and Nigel Goodrich appears as a b-side to the new Atoms for Peace single. The a-side is a remix of Atoms for Peace's own song, "Other Side." You can stream the Other Lives remix below, where you'll also find the single's artwork. The single comes out on limited edition white vinyl on July 30 (sold out) and regular vinyl on August 6 via Modeselektor's Monkeytown label for their 50WEAPONS series.

Flying Lotus at Pitchfork Festival - 7/1412
You may remember that during Flying Lotus' set at Brazil's Sonar Festival, he revealed that his new album, Until the Quiet Comes, will be out in "October or some shit," as seen in a YouTube video that has since been removed. That release date has since been finalized, and we now know that it will come out October 2 via Warp. Like 2010's Cosmogramma, the album will feature a guest spot from Thom Yorke, and others TBA. Additionally, we recently mentioned on BV Chicago that Warp recently reissued FlyLo's catalog on vinyl and it's also all currently streaming.
He'll be supporting that album with what is presumably going to be a tour. Nothing's been announced in full yet, but we do know that he'll be in NYC to headline Terminal 5 on October 7. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/20) at noon.
Flying Lotus was just in Chicago for Pitchfork Festival on Saturday (7/14), which we posted pics of HERE and HERE. While he was there, he also stopped by the Brainfeeder showcase, though just after midnight he tweeted, "Cops shut the party down. Sorry. Maybe see u at the adult swim party tomorrow." The Adult Swim party he was referring to was the Eric Andre Show, which is touring with different musical guests at each stop. Flying Lotus played the one in Chicago on Sunday (7/15) and the tour comes to NYC on Thursday (7/19) at Santos with Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and Saturday (7/21) at Public Assembly with Wiki.
All currently known dates are listed below along with more pics from Pitchfork Festival.
London-via-Estonia psychedelic pop singer Maria Minerva is planning to release her new album, Will Happiness Find Me?, on
August 1 September 4 via Not Not Fun. The album follows her excellent 2011 EP, Sacred & Profane Love, which came out on NNF sister label 100% Silk. The album was recorded in Lisbon, finished in London, and mastered in Berlin. She's also got a collaborative album with NNF/100% Silk label boss LA Vampires (aka Amanda Brown) called The Integration, which is due this October.
Maria will be touring New Zealand/Australia in August, and after that she'll be heading to the US for a tour here. That tour hasn't been announced in full yet, but we already know she'll play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on September 8 with Thom Yorke/Atoms for Peace (DJ set), Holy Other, Rustie, and Justin Strauss. Tickets for that show are still available.

Manchester producer Holy Other released one of the finest EPs of 2011 with the With U EP, and he just announced that he'll follow it with his debut full length this year, which is titled Held. The album's out August 28 via Tri Angle, who also released his EP. The first taste is a new track titled "Love Some1" which is rooted in the same type of Burialesque bass, snaps, and pitch shifted vocals that made his EP so great, and this track is no exception. Stream it below, along with the album's tracklist.
Holy Other was supposed to make his way over to the states last year but had to cancel due to illness and never ended up doing so. Now he's once again got plans to head over to our side of the Atlantic, and assuming all goes well, he'll make his US live debut at PS1's Warm Up on September 8. That one's the final show of the series and it's got an especially stacked lineup with Thom Yorke's Atmos for Peace (DJ), Rustie (who we've written about HERE), Maria Minerva (who we've written about HERE and HERE) and Justin Strauss. Tickets for Warm Up go on sale June 18.
All dates are listed below along with the song stream and album tracklist...

Entitled "Dot Connectors", this message was posted to Radiohead.com today:
I was very sad to hear the news of Adam Yauch's death yesterday.Check out videos of some bands remembering MCA from stage last night.
We looked up to the Beastie Boys a lot when we were starting out and how they maintained artistic control making wicked records but still were on a major label, and the Tibetan Freedom Concerts they organized had a very big influence on me personally and the way Adam conducted himself and dealt with it all impressed me a lot. He was a mellow and v smart guy. May he rest in peace.

Atoms For Peace @ Roseland 2010 (more by Bao Nguyen)
"After the opening of the Stanley Donwood exhibition at Subliminal Projects Gallery an afterparty was scheduled at MOCA in LA with Gonjasuffi, Ana Caldaron, as well as Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich (Nigel: "We're Djing at Mike D's bash"). The two under the name Atoms For Peace played 5 new songs with Thom Yorke vocals. And it all points out to tracks from the highly anticipated Atoms For Peace album.A couple of videos from the set, a recently-gone viral video of Carrie Manolakos covering "Creep" at Le Poisson Rouge, and a video of little kids reviewing Radiohead, below...
Atoms For Peace is live band of Thom Yorke, which includes Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea. A new album was in the works, but till today there was no sign of new material." [At Easeweb]

Wild Flag's Carrie Brownstein & the Hives @ Coachella Sunday - 4/22/2012
"The second weekend brought record heat. Festival-goers jockeyed for patches of grass around the shaded perimeters. They pounded frozen lemonade at $6 a cup.How was your Coachella?
"It feels like a different world from last weekend," The Shins frontman James Mercer said. "It was Iceland last week."
While the weather forced some practical fashion choices, Coachella's sartorial influence was noted well beyond Indio. Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne debated Coachella-inspired fashion trends, and the wider cultural significance of the festival, on the E! Channel program, "The Fashion Police."
Osbourne, a Coachella regular, proclaimed, "When you go to Coachella, all the girls are half-naked and 22." Rivers, who joked that she goes to Coachella, too, quipped, "If David Hasselhoff was there, this means officially Coachella is no longer cool."" [MYDesert.com]
After DJing a party on Friday night and headlining with his band Radiohead on Saturday, Thom Yorke kept busy on Sunday by DJing a Rolling Stone pool party with Nigel Godrich, and then showing up as a not-so-surprise, special guest during Modeselektor's Sunday night set in the Mojave tent while Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg headlined the main Coachella stage.

"Did y'all peep my Lil boob out with tha pastie today at coachella ?!? That was my Lil Kim moment !" - AZEALIA BANKS
hologram Biggie w/ Black Lips / Azealia Banks / ASAP Rocky @ Coachella Saturday
"For a certain breed of diehard Coachella fan, once is just not enough. And since 2012 is the first year that the epic desert music and arts festival is being mounted twice in Indio, California, it was inevitable that some of the most obsessed would find a way to attend both three-day weekends.Coachella concludes today, Sunday, 4/22, Earth Day 2012.
"The Monday after the first one, I was kind of licking my wounds and I said, 'Hey, let's go again! I'm down. I get paid on Friday. It can happen," 28-year-old Carlos Morales, from Fullerton, California, told Rolling Stone yesterday. "Radiohead was a big part of it. They were amazing, and I really wanted to see them again."
Tickets for a single Coachella weekend are hard enough to come by; in recent years, they've typically sold out within days of going on sale, which sparked the motivation for festival organizers Goldenvoice Productions to add an identical second weekend this year. About six percent of festivalgoers who bought tickets online directly from the promoter managed to pick up tickets for both weekends, said Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett. Resales are harder to measure, but last-minute impulse buyers for the second weekend were rewarded with some tickets being sold at below face value.
Alison Swing, 21, of Long Beach, bought her second set of tickets "from a friend of a friend of a friend" and got a $100 discount from the cover price, she said with a laugh. "It was nerve-wracking spending the money," Swing admitted, "but I wanted to go back so bad. I'll deal with it after." [Rolling Stone]
You saw the pictures from Friday, a video of the Black Keys performing with John Fogerty, video from a Friday night party that Thom Yorke DJ'd, and Radiohead's setlist from Saturday. Here are the pictures from Saturday, 4/21/2012, Record Store Day, the 2nd day of the 2nd weekend of Coachella 2012.
As you can see in the above picture, The Black Lips paid tribute (if you want to call it that) to hologram Tupac (who should be making another appearance with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg tonight) with their own hologram (actually a cut out) of Biggie Smalls. St. Vincent joined Andrew Bird on stage to help perform "Lusitania." Azealia Banks, in a different looking outfit than last week, apparently suffered a wardrobe malfunction. A$AP Rocky was joined by Master P, Romeo, No Limit and many other friends on stage in the Gobi tent, as he and Radiohead simultaneously closed out the night once again.
More pictures from all of Saturday, and a video from ASAP's guest-filled set, below...

As I type this, Radiohead just opened their second Saturday night Coachella headlining set in a row with "Bloom". I wonder how/if their setlist will vary from last week (pics from last time HERE). We'll know soon (update: we know now).
Meanwhile, check out the video of Thom Yorke DJing the Coachella Brainfeeder party with Flying Lotus and Gaslamp Killer at Ace Hotel in Palm Springs last night (4/20), along with a video of Thom dancing during GK's set, below...

BrooklynVegan is proud to present a free screening of award-winning film "The Island President." What is "The Island President" about? Ask Radiohead's Thom Yorke!...
Says Thom Yorke: "'The Island President' is a film about the Maldives, and the struggle of President Nasheed to get the voice of a small nation heard in the climate change debate. Unless something is done to stop rising sea levels they will lose everything. The country will be under water. Some of our music was used to help tell the story."Radiohead contributed 14 songs to the film, about which you could also say:
"The Island President" is the story of the Maldives' bad-ass president, Mohamed Nasheed, and his fight against global warming. His tiny island nation is on the brink of demise -- rising sea levels will certainly swallow up the entire country, and along with it, every last person and vestige of their civilization -- in the foreseeable future. (Keep in mind Manhattan is also a low-lying area surrounded by water. This issue is not exclusive to the Maldives; they are only the first casualty.)Unfortunately, last month, on February 7, Mohamed Nasheed, the democratically-elected president of the Maldives, was forced to resign in a coup d'etat orchestrated by the military and forces loyal to the former dictator. He continues to fight the good fight for the democracy and survival of his people though. Learn more by watching the film.
The movie opens in theaters on Wednesday, March 28, but you're invited to a special BrooklynVegan advance screening at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on Sunday, March 25th. Like our previous free screenings of "Boy", "Senna" and "Exit Through the Gift Shop", this one is first come, first served, and seated.
Unlike at our previous screenings, at this one we're giving away two pair of Radiohead tickets! Details on how to win, and the movie trailer, below...
"Walls of Tom #radiohead" (via paulvkieu)
Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood has a new album. NPR explains:
How do you capture the energy -- both positive and negative -- of the past 50 years by using instruments perfected in the 18th century and made of wood, glue and horsehair?Stream the whole thing at NPR.
That challenge lies at the very heart of this album, which brings together one of rock and electronic music's superheroes, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, with one of his own idols: the septuagenarian Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki. The collection features two string pieces written by the elder composer, 1960's Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima and 1961's Polymorphia for 48 strings, juxtaposed with two of Greenwood's similarly set answers to Penderecki's work: Popcorn Superhet Receiver (inspired by Threnody) and 48 Responses to Polymorphia. Here, they both choose to use a seemingly antiquated vehicle -- orchestral strings -- to convey the noise, chaos and energy of our time. The results are ear-tingling.
Radiohead are currently out touring North America. Upcoming shows include Dallas and Austin. Recent shows include Houston, Miami, and Atlanta where one group of hardcore fans was NOT happy about how they were treated when the doors opened, or should I say didn't open. Their story and video below...
